Are probably my favorite artists/bands/composers
That is quite an extensive list, and already includes half of my J-Pop collection. Some notable artists you're missing (in my opinion) are Suara, Haruko Momoi, Mami Kawada, and Masami Okui. Of the ones you listed, my favorites are Minori Chihara, Elisa, Yui Horie, Lia, and Utada Hikaru.

I'm actually looking for more artists I might enjoy. Specifically, I like good music better than anything else - a great voice is an obvious plus, but not necessary. However, an annoying voice (think Aya Hirano) can ruin songs IMO. I've also yet to find a male J-Pop artist I really like, most of their voices I personally find annoying. If you have any suggestions for me based on what I said I liked, please tell me!
